Pilates, Alignment and Posture

Time: 6 Hours

Description: This workshop will include a discussion of key alignment problems such as kyphosis, rolled shoulders, in-facing knees, hyperextended knees and excessive foot pronation in terms of their commonly associated strength imbalances, flexibility imbalances, and related postural patterns. Presentation of classical and novel Pilates-based exercises designed to improve these alignment problems, with a particular emphasis on developing kinesthetic awareness and desired muscle activation patterns that can be transferred from isolation exercises to functional movement.
